North Yorkshire Police received a call from member of public last week (Thursday 13 April 2023) who was concerned for the welfare of a dog at a property in Starbeck.
Officers attended and on arrival they detected a strong smell of cannabis. A search took place and officers uncovered a large kukri style knife and a telescopic baton. A large bag of what is suspected to be a class-b drug, scales and several mobile phones were also found.
A 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of offensive weapon in a private place, causing unnecessary suffering to an animal and possession with an intent to supply a Class-B drug.
He was interviewed and has since been released under investigation.
